Spend three nights in Auckland including an adventure to the Northland country to learn more about the important national tradition of sheep farming. Experience the genuine and uniquely friendly nature of New Zealand "Kiwis" and the rich Maori culture while admiring the varied and exceptional scenery simply everywhere. Tour charming Christchurch, where English influence persists in Victorian architecture and well-tended parks.
